Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.

Create this magnificent rose - the most popular icing flower of them all. With practice, your roses will have the just-picked look of real fresh garden roses!

A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.

Floral Expression Cake is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter actually is the cake maker of the family. She is 16 and loves to bake. She loves Wilton products and recipes. She uses the buttercream icing all the time! :) She recently obtained this cross pan and couldn't wait to use it!! This appeared to be an easy cake to make and will be one of our favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this for a niece's 1st communion. She wanted pink roses, so it was an easy change. If you don't feel comfortable doing the roses, Wilton now offers the pre-made roses you can buy that would make this cake super easy to do!! Lovely cake!! Thanks, Wilton, for the great idea!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to make and very pretty when done. Used pink roses and white icing for a first communion cake. Make roses with tube 126 and that size added a nice look for the cross cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a baptism for a friend. I made the roses in pink & purple and I took out the scroll piping. It still looked very nice.
